Hello, we're Utility Warehouse  

We help people get on with their lives and spend their time how they want to.

Which? ‘Utilities Brand of the Year' 2018 

WE'RE MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER UTILITY PROVIDER

We’re a discount club and the only place you can get your Energy, Home Phone, Broadband and Mobile services, all bundled together. 

Members have just one monthly bill for all their utilities, making budgeting easier and putting customers in control of their spending.

A BIT MORE ABOUT US

You probably won't have heard much about us, but we're one of the UK's biggest, home-grown success stories of the last 20 years.  

We're a FTSE 250 business and knocking on the door of £1 billion in annual revenue. But in two decades of phenomenal change and growth as a business, there are two things that have remained constant:  

  • We bundle together all our customers' household utilities and send them a single monthly bill  
  • We don't promote our services directly to customers - we have 40,000 partners around the country who recommend us

HOW WE WORK

What you need to know:  

  • We want to operate in a less heavy way, reduce delays and make things simpler.  
  • We’re still scaling, we’ve seen massive growth across the business, our data journey is well underway with the team growing steadily and several new teams spinning up in technology.  
  • We deliver quickly by keeping processes light and enabling autonomy, happy in the knowledge people will be challenged on their ideas.  
  • We’ve never believed in ivory tower leadership, our leadership team are hands-on, roll up their sleeves when needed types that mentor and support not only from a technical standpoint.  
  • We don’t appreciate egos, shouting the loudest doesn’t make your idea the best instead we believe in debate, collaboration and learning.  
  • We encourage experimenting, seeing failure as learning, believing it’s about being pragmatic and achieving a balance between speed and quality.  
  • We believe that not every industry or product has to be exciting on the outside for the engineering challenge to be interesting.  
  • We care about how we deliver and who we work with, we enjoy working on interesting problems with smart people and that if it was easy it wouldn't be fun.

HERE IS WHAT OUR TEAM HAVE TO SAY:

OUR TEAMS

We try to make the complex simple, our teams are trusted to try new things but be prepared to be challenged.  

WE BELIEVE THE RIGHT TOOL IS THE BEST TOOL

We want to use the best tools for the job, our teams have autonomy but also take responsibility for technology choices. We value decoupling and avoid vendor lock-in at every opportunity. Our systems are eventually consistent, event sourced, designed after our business domain and deployed in a distributed, micro architecture.

By popular choice we are primarily a go house with frontend powered mostly by typescript rolled react/graphql duo; we like experimenting, there’s more rust and WASM coming up; but you will also find staples like python or java. 

We’re into cloud native and kubernetes, if it Dockerizes it fits, some examples include: cockroachdb, tikv, pql, mongo for storage; kafka, nats for brokers; thanos, grafana, graylog for instrumentation; kustomize, kube-applier, traefik for deployment and operations.

If it can be open- sourced, it shall. If we can submit a PR instead of building our own, we will. Getting your hands dirty from the top to the bottom of the stack isn’t a promise to be broken, it’s a requirement. If you’re only good at parts of it that’s okay, we’ll support you getting good at all of it.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR VP OF ENGINEERING, MIKE DONAT

"We are looking for true technologists with a genuine interest in what they do day to day. If you're an open source contributor, hacker and wiz who loves to write code - great, so are we and we would love to hear from you! 

We are interested in both specialists and generalists; we strongly believe in lean methodologies, testing, automation, cross discipline and above all in getting things done and out there in front of our customers. 

If your interests span technologies from front end to linux containers you will find plenty to do here - if you rather concentrate on architecture or react.js then there's plenty of that too."
